12-input field mixer with 16-track integrated recorder and timecode. Six mic/line inputs with phantom, high-pass, and limiters plus six line-only inputs. Master L/R outputs plus aux buses. Records broadcast WAV and MP3 files to CompactFlash and SD cards. Powered by 10-18 VDC or 5-AA batteries.
The 664 was the first of the popular 6-Series mixer/recorders to be released. It has 12 analog inputs, four output buses, and records these 16 tracks to both CF and SD cards. This unprecedented amount of I/O connectivity and recording capability makes the 664 perfect for a wide range of production applications.
The 664 has six ultra-low noise, high-dynamic-range mic/line inputs. These transformer-less preamps offer analog peak limiters, high-pass filters, input trim controls, and direct outputs. Input connectors 1 and 6 can be selected to accept AES42 or AES3 digital signals. Six line-level inputs, 7 through 12, are available by reassigning direct
outputs as inputs from the Input Setup Menu. With an attached CL-6 Controller, inputs 7-12 have dedicated fader control.
In complex, multi-camera productions, output flexibility is essential. The 664 offers three sets of balanced left/right outputs. Two additional output buses, X1 and X2, appear on balanced TA3 connectors. XLR and multi-pin outputs are selectable to AES3 digital.
The 664 can record all inputs and output buses, for 16 record tracks. Recordings are saved to CompactFlash and SD cards as either 16- or 24-bit Broadcast WAV files. Scene, take, track, notes, and time code metadata are recorded with the file. All popular production sampling rates are supported. MP3 recording is available for transcription
Clear, fast, easy to navigate controls and interface. Important controls are on dedicated knobs and switches, while additional features are quickly accessed through the intuitive LCD-based menu control.
With the mixer’s built-in, rock-steady Ambient timecode generator, multiple devices can operate in synchronization. The 664 operates as either a timecode master clock or its clock can be jammed from external timecode. A helpful timecode compare utility shows the difference between internal and external timecode.
Wingman, a wireless remote control option for the 6-Series mixer/recorder line, is a free application that, when paired with the required WM-Connect Bluetooth® Smart USB accessory, enables clear views of metering and timecode display on the larger screens of iOS and Android mobile devices.
